The Healing Value of Food

2020-04-30T10:44:40+01:00

The value for healthy, natural and unprocessed food to me, is one of the greater things to offer. It’s a struggle in today’s world as there are various factors that make it difficult to sustain. But therein lies the desire even more so, to see the success of bringing good food and nutrition to the community. Going against the current is a hard thing but is not an option when you feel passionately about something and you just have to do it. There is great scope in the healing value of food and bringing it to the community. The care that [...]

Earth Hour 2019

2020-04-30T10:44:40+01:00

Earth hour is observed as an event to raise awareness of protecting the environment. Earth hour as a movement strives to unite people around the world to get involved in the discussion of preserving nature and actionable ways to go forth doing so. The simple acts matter in this regard. It may be nurturing a plant to life even if it may seem wilted. Choosing to save energy and electricity. Not using harsh pollutants in the soil. Doing away with the use of chemicals in our homes that end up in our rivers and water supply. Or even walking or cycling [...]

Sautéed fillet in mandarin sauce

2020-04-30T10:46:51+01:00

From a range of delicious preparations of steak, one of the most popular in Chinese cuisine is the Sautéed fillet in mandarin sauce. The complexity and simple elegance of this dish encompasses the sweet, sour and crispy. The orange marinade is the key to getting the steak tender and juicy giving it an added burst of citrus. This is an excellent complement to any beef dish. There is also fresh garlic that balances the citrus. And, the onions are caramelised to bring good balance of crunch and sweet. This fillet of steak cooked in a robust Mandarin sauce has become one [...]

Mother’s Day 2019

2020-04-30T10:46:51+01:00

Being a mum is never easy but hugely rewarding. As mothers, we see our children through the eyes of unconditional love and all is forgotten once they come over to say they’re sorry. Sound familiar? And here is that one day in the year to remind children to do something to celebrate their mothers. It is one of the busiest Sundays of the year and despite the commercialism that surrounds it, people do honour this day in a meaningful way. I think the “act” of doing something celebratory is an important part of making memories and strengthening bonds. It may be [...]

King Prawns with Chilli

2020-04-30T10:46:51+01:00

The cold weather makes us crave spice and variety in our diet. A slender red or green chilli set on a dish of almost anything definitely piques our excitement and interest, and even the sight and aroma can do wonders for the body and mind. Spices used in Chinese cuisine perform various functions in enhancing or even subduing over-powering flavours that can come across too strong. Come to think of it, they all have their part to play in serving the dining experience and providing vitality at the same time. Our szechuan style chicken or king prawn dish is the perfect concoction [...]
